Haircare brand Kristin Ess to launch in Priceline after selling out in Target US stores

After more than two decades in the hair industry, Kristin Ess thought she had amassed enough know-how to launch her own brand – and she was right. 

In fact, the eponymous line completely sold out of US Target, in just two weeks – marking the superstore’s most successful hair care launch to date. 

And now, to the delight of hair-care enthusiasts across the country, it’s coming to Australia, becoming available at Priceline in October.

Lauded for its affordable opulence, the products are cruelty-free and consistently sell out each time they’re restocked in overseas markets.   

Included in the range are shampoos and conditioners, a rose gold temporary tint, texture spray, leave in conditioner and beach wave spray. 

Online punters have praised the products’ simplicity and ability to live up to the hype. 

‘This combo makes my hair feels SO soft, so full of body, yet, it’s SO smooth and shiny,’ one woman wrote. 

‘The scent is absolutely incredible. I cant quite put my finger on it but it smells like a very clean light floral with a hint of a vanilla finish.’

However another admitted to it leaving her tresses greasier than before use.     

‘I have thick dry hair, but I felt this left a slight sunburn feeling on my scalp the next day my hair was super greasy,’ she wrote.
